Jones has been out all spring with what coach John Harbaugh described as a "health issue," Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports. "He had kind of an episode a few months ago. He's not cleared to practice at this time," Harbaugh said Wednesday. While it's unclear what is keeping him from OTAs and minicamp, Jones is expected to return for training camp. Once he's back in the fold, Jones will compete for a depth role in a loaded Ravens secondary.
Jones was let go by the Patriots on Saturday, Ryan Hannable of WEEI reports. The news comes as rather striking considering Jones was drafted in the second round of the 2016 draft. New England is no stranger to striking moves, however, so it's not all that unconventional for the dynasty. Jones has a good chance to latch on elsewhere considering his youth and potential.
Jones (knee) was taken off the PUP list Tuesday and returned to practice, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports. While Jones has officially been removed from the PUP list, the Patriots likely won't be quick to rush him back to a full workload given that he is coming off an ACL tear. But a return to practice in any capacity is a great sign for Jones after he spent the entire 2017 season on injured reserve.
Jones (knee) is practicing in limited fashion during OTAs, Paul Perillo of the Patriots' official site reports. Jones tore his ACL and meniscus during the 2017 preseason and missed the entire year as a result. He's currently working with the team's rehab group while working his way back into some non-contact drills. He isn't wearing a brace, which is a sign he's nearing a full return. It's expected that he won't be limited once training camp begins and he works towards a depth role on the defense.
Jones suffered a knee injury in Thursday's preseason matchup against the Giants and will not return. Jones went to the ground with with a non-contact injury to his knee while covering a deep pass down the sideline. There's no telling how serious this injury is, but the 2016 second-round pick is vying for a role as a return man and on special teams coverage units if he can get healthy again.
